Tomatoes and watering...
This may be a question already covered on the forum, I am new to the forum. Please refer me to such information if it already exists. I have just planted my garden which includes many tomato plants (from potted plants, not from seed.) I live in the coastal region in California (zone 9 or 10) and I have received conflicting information on watering tomatoes, how often to water, how much to water, etc. Please keep in mind that we in southern California have a near desert climate. My questions are:
1. How often should I water the tomatoes? how much water?
2. Does the flavor and quality change depending on watering?
3. What watering system is best?
Thank you in advance and much appreciation for information which this beginner really needs!
